Sundance is going on right now, so I thought this might be a good time to post the trailer to Shane Carruth‘s new film “Upstream Color”. If you’re at Sundance and have the opportunity to attend the world premiere tomorrow, here’s the details, and I’m very envious of you.

Carruth is the writer, director and actor from a film called Primer. Of my all time favorite films, Primer rests comftorably in the top five. If you haven’t seen it, I’d suggest going here and downloading it, trust me it’s worth it. That said, Upstream Color is Shane’s newest film and as cryptic and mysterious as the teasers and trailer are, I have full trust that this film will be nothing short of amazing.

The synopsis for Upstream Color,

A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism.

Trailer 1

You can view the teasers for Upstream Color and trailer for Primer here.

If Mr. Carruth stumbles upon this and is looking for someone to collaborate with on visual elements for upcoming films, I’m onboard.

I’ve heard that Shane Carruth composed the track, as he usually takes over every aspect of the films he creates. Or so I’ve read.
I’ve tried finding it myself.

Primer was genius. I had no idea they were filming it in Addison Circle (in Addison, Texas) when I was living there. If I had known, I would’ve found an inconspicuous bench and watched.

Primer was a great movie. Anytime you can successfully explore concepts like time travel without the gratuitous special effects, you know you have a winner. Very interested to see this next movie.

Has anyone seen the movie Love, by William Eubank? It’s on Netflix, and I thought it was pretty interesting. Eubank’s still photography is pretty nice as well.
